|GMG Rapidly Expanding (02-17-2008)|
|As you may have noticed, the GMG has been upgrading, upgrading, upgrading! We now have 250MB hosting, a search tool up at the top, news archives, an upgraded server, game screenshots, a game making contest, and column sorting in all of the categories! As you can see, we've been quite busy, and plan to add a lot more in the future, so please-- keep those comments coming!|
|Announcing the First GMG Game Making Contest (02-16-2008)|
|I am pleased to announce the first Game Maker's Garage Game Making Contest will be held starting today. The contest will try to find the best game made using SilverCreator or GameMaker created by the community.
The prize is a front-page announcement about the winning game, with a screenshot, and a permanent screenshot in the "GMG Hall of Fame," a banner that will be put up in the header of the website.
The contest begins today, Saturday, February 16, 2008, and the deadline for submissions will be Friday, March 15, 2008. At that point, all games will be posted, and voting will begin. The best game will be chosen based off user votes. The voting period will begin on Saturday, March 16, 2008, and continue for one full week, until Saturday, March 23.
All games must have been created this year, and can be submitted here.
Best of Luck!

|We here at the GMG wish all of you a Happy New Year, and look forward to all sorts of great things this year. There are several exciting RPGs in development, cool new add-ons for GameMaker games, and of course, the much anticipated GameMaker 4.0!|
|Download counter added to 'Game Downloads' page (12-24-2007)|
|So developers can better track the distribution of their games on the GMG, I've added a download counter to the 'Game Downloads' page due to popular request. The script logs your IP address so you can't artificially inflate your download count, so don't even try. Enjoy, and I hope this proves to be a useful tool for everybody!|
